Here is a license I've used this year to two different publishers.
They both accepted it. One was a U press and the other a scientific
society. If you all use an identical form, it might be easier..



The parties to this Agreement are the XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, and Ann Okerson, New Haven, CT, regarding a paper and a set of transparencies to appear in the forthcoming proceedings of the XXX conference in April 1998. The XXX book in which this contribution will appear is XXXX.
